What was once an eight-man field will soon be whittled down to two in the Bellator MMA light heavyweight grand prix.

Vadim Nemkov will defend his 205-pound championship against the once-beaten Julius Anglickas on Saturday at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, their tournament semifinal serving as the Bellator 268 headliner. Meanwhile, the co-main event sees Ryan Bader tackle fellow Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Corey Anderson in the other semifinal.

Bellator 268 “Nemkov vs. Anglickas”—which airs live on Showtime at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT—will also feature a lightweight showcase pitting Benson Henderson against Brent Primus and a featherweight tilt pairing Henry Corrales with Vladyslav Parubchenko. The undercard will stream in its entirety to the Bellator YouTube channel at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, a light heavyweight clash between Karl Albrektsson and Dovletdzhan Yagshimuradov topping the eight-fight preliminary slate.
